(n) Ok, We just updated our modem from a Motorola SBG900 to a SBG6580.

Speedtests are substantially better.

We have 2 laptops, 2 desktops, 2 Xboxs, and a PS3 all running on the network. All of them are running amazing...except for (of course) my desktop.

I can run speedtest on my desktop and get around 12Mb, but when I try to browse the internet, websites take stoopid long to load and sometimes won't even load. But to make things even more strange, when I stream a video from youtube or something, it will take years for the video to start streaming, but once it does, it flies.

Talked to Motorola and all they could say, is if you have an internet connection, its fine. :confused:

No settings were changed at all from the time we turned off the old modem to the time we activated the new one.

Virus scan checks out. Tried on both Wireless and Wired. All drivers updated. Was about to format my computer but I lost my damn Win7 install disc. >< Please Save Me. :(

have you tried checking the browsing speed on safe mode with networking?

press the F8 key when the computer boot
choose safe mode with networking
then try if you still have issue browsing in this configuration of your pc

restart your browser to original settings. Since you did not specify the Windows OS and browser in this thread, I will go by the one next to your name (windows 7) and using Internet Explorer.

Go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Internet Options. Click on the Advanced Tab. Make sure you do not have any browser windows open when you click on Reset.

Click on Restore Advanced Settings (you may find it doesn't do anything. This is normal.) and then click on Reset. Click on the checkbox that says Delete Personal Settings (as in check it) and then click on Reset. NOTE By doing this will possibly remove any passwords saved and disables add-ons/toolbars, as well as favorites.

Once it's done, click Close and restart your browser. See if that helps.

O yah sorry. Win7 x64 and I primarily use google chrome but ill use IE for this stuff (even though they are both slow, including firefox.

Safemode with networking - still slow

Reset advanced settings and such - stiill slow

Like I said, I didn't change any settings when I made the modem switch, and browsing speeds were perfectly fine before. So that's why im at a loss here. :(
